    Stop Desktop Alerts of new mail

    I went through Options -- File / Options / Mail / Message Arrival -- and turned them off, but they are still showing up. Is there a real way to turn them off?

    Regards,

    I'm not sure, Browni, what I'd be looking for, since all my rules are for categorization, but I'll look.

    Thanks,

    Have you stopped and restart Outlook after the change?

    Do you have some third party add-in which is doing the notification?

    As to the add-ins, Joe, I have an EverNote add-in, an MS Exchange and MS VBA for Outlook, and the Outlook ToDo add-in. The only I'm not sure I need the Exchange, and the Outlook ToDo is the one you had mentioned. The EverNote is one I have used prior.

    Try running Outlook with add-in disabled and see what happens.

    You're right, Joe. It was/is that add-in -- Outlook2013TodoAddin. I turned off all add-ins, and all was fine until that one was loaded -- last. The pop-up came back immediately.

    I'm just going to -- via macro -- use my Calendar program, Calendarscope. It works pretty well that way. Not added into Outlook, but then it doesn't give me errors either -- AND, it's hooked into Google Calendar, so it will "talk" to my phone etc. as well.

    Thanks for all your efforts, Joe.

    I'll have to enable it again and poke around...it's hidden somewhere, or right in front of me and I'm not seeing it, which has surely happened more than once!

    Now if they could show more than just one month... You can sorta scroll to the next, but it's not nearly as handy.
